Inclusion at The Sheffield College is for students who have a variety of support needs, learning difficulties or disabilities, or are seeking to re-engage with education.
Chelsea, Supported Internship at Waitrose
We offer two different pathways for students, designed to give them the opportunity to develop their independence, confidence and skills for social situations, everyday life and work.
Our Career Discovery pathway is a stepping stone for young people to progress onto further learning or into employment. The pathway is for young people who need to improve their English and maths skills, and develop their skills for working life and living independently. This is an ideal opportunity for young people who are not currently in education, employment or training.
Please note: it is possible for us to accept students aged 14 - 16 as infills onto our Find Your Future study programmes. Students may be accepted following an application and interview with a member of the team. Please contact 14-16EHE@sheffcol.ac.uk for more information.
Foundation Learning is a pathway for you to develop your skills for the world of work and for life. They are supported courses that enable you to develop your independent living skills and your social, emotional and personal development. You will take part in practical options including cooking and art and will also have the opportunity to develop your English and maths skills. Some courses on this pathway also have a supported placement attached to enable you to develop your skills and confidence in the workplace.
Our Inclusion programmes are further enhanced throughout the year with opportunities for students to participate in additional sporting events, overnight and week-long residential stays, educational visits, lunch-time activities and end-of-year celebration events. Our number one priority is to make sure our students learn in a safe environment. Our friendly staff are experts in providing support for young people with a wide range of specific needs. They provide students with the best possible learning environment so that they can achieve their goals.
